I donno... the corrosion gives it kind of a "works" finish. Let it rot I say.justbob said:sodium hydroxide (NaOH) is typically used for stripping anodizing. One thing to remember is that aluminum is anodized to provide corrosion protection. Depending upon the aluminum alloy your newly stripped aluminum part may start to corrode. Best thing is to live with your old-school color.
The powder coater should be able to tell you. I'd say, "probably".martinsillo said:I'm going to powder coat the rims after the stripping...what do you guys think? Can I do the powder coat without the stripping?
